IVF : An Emotional Companion by Brigid Moss

IVF: An Emotional Companion is an invaluable, personal support, based on women's first hand experiences, for anyone struggling to conceive. Sharing the real life stories of twenty women who have had, and who have worked their way through, fertility problems, this book is a lifeline for women and couples everywhere wanting to have a baby: an honest, inspirational and comforting read promising to help get you through the rollercoaster that is fertility treatment. According to official figures, one in six couples have problems conceiving and more women than ever before are now considering IVF. It's not just a physically taxing and expensive process -- the emotional strain can at times be unbearable. Having to make lots of emotionally-charged decisions at every turn is tough: Should I push my GP to refer me for investigations? Are we ready for IVF? Should we try natural methods first? What shall we do now the treatment has failed? To help you work through these decisions, IVF: An Emotional Companion explains how others in similar situations have tackled these challenges and coped.
